I have a question about Geolocation IP update.
The help guide(McAfee Next Generation Firewall 5.9.0) describes as following about it.
The location information for public IP addresses is based on an internal Geolocation database on the Management Server.
The IP addresses in the Geolocation database are updated when the Management Server is updated.
I would like to know "when the Management Server is updated." meaning.
My understanding is following, is that correct?
- "Update Package"(https://update.stonesoft.com/releases/XXX-XXXX-RLNT.html) has the update information about Geolocation IP address.
- The IP address in Geolocation DB is upgraded when "Update Package" is applied to SMC.
No, the Geolocation database is part of SMC installation, it is not part of dynamic updates. So tha Management Server update in this context refers to version upgrade. There is actually two separate databases IPv4 and IPv6 and both are updated on software upgrade.
